Not all microphones are created equal. Most of them are designed for vocals and music. Like the TableMikes, the TravelMikes have also been specifically designed and manufactured for maximum performance with speech, but in the smallest possible format.
The combined effect of the industry first ‘Speech Equaliser (EQ)’ and the ‘Automatic Gain Control (AGC)’ or Amplifier integrated in our VoiceMatic V10 chipset is crucially important for speech in general and Dragon® in particular. In fact, keeping always the same dictation distance to the microphone is not so important any more: as you move away, our TravelMike automatically increases its volume and vice versa...
Additionally, human voice never maintain a steady volume level so even the latest version of Dragon has to make an educated guess. This may affect accuracy while adding noticeable latency. This essential input microphone problem is fully solved with the aforementioned hardware technology.
In another words, besides excellent dictation technique, accurate and instantaneous transcription is very much dependent of getting a highly constant and proportionate human voice spectrum or diagram (the green bars below), not to mention an imperceptible level of internal or background noise (the yellow bars), when running Dragon, like the TravelMike will always provide:
Beware of all those general purpose audio devices not built for speech recognition or poorly designed. They promise a high degree of background noise rejection at the expense of a noticeable latency and loss or drop out in your voice spectrum. Also, of most Bluetooth wireless devices which constantly emit radiation nearby your brains and are not even capable of handling human voice overtones!…
